. something that kind of shocked me in the great state of tennessee with the courthouse. i thought they couldn't really top fighting the ten commandment ins courthouses. having a place you put up thou shalt not kill is pretty funny. in cookeville, tennessee? >> in cookeville, tennessee they decided that a pastor there, a southern baptist pastor decided that what was missing from the putnam county courthouse were the words "in god we trust." okay, fine. it is on the money. it is essentially the model of the united states. because eisenhower got that passed in 1956. >> john: it is not the conservative point of view. the conservative point of view would be a separation of church and state as the founders intended. 18th century point of view is putting in god we trust in everything. >> they raised money to put "in god we trust" in two foot tall gold letters, not just on the front of the courthouse but on all four sides above every entrance. so that no matter where you walk into the courthouse, you see "in god we trust." >> that's very donald trump of them. >> i just want to know what's wrong with
us from tennessee, a democrat. caller: it does not matter who president obama nominates. as a report that came out in june that under president obama that 7% of the injuries have occurred in afghanistan. does that sound like we're winning? guest: steve used the word tribe. by talking about i am not the senator from israel. the problem with that kind of language is that it suggests that those who have a very strong strategic view about the u.s.-israeli relationship somehow are in the pocket of israelis. i think that is wrong. there are strategic reasons for the relationship. on afghanistan, i would say senator chuck hagel's held different positions. when the iraq war was going poorly and the search was suggested, senator chuck hagel said, we have taken our eye off the ball. the greatest threat the united states faces is between the mountains of pakistan and afghanistan. today, or previously, he opposed the president's surge in afghanistan. these are issues that need to be addressed. where does he think afghanistan is going to go? why did he think that afghanistan was such a vital, str

to mississippi. and down the road, met some resistance. tennessee highway patrol was to the state line, i thought a big sign, welcome to the magnolia state. i was looking around for mississippi highway patrol. they were going to pick us up and take us there. did not know until six hours later that they had totally blocked off their duties, totally left the state of mississippi, further insurrection, cleared the campus. we made our way down a two lane highway, ultimately reported to a general officer and when you are a second lieutenant in the military barely show up reporting to a lieutenant colonel and here was a general officer, a star on each shoulder and he said lt. i want you to take a platoon of soldiers down to the lyceum and put out the rise units that have been there already and go downtown. i didn't want to ask him anything. and chief executive officer giving a low employee and order. you don't say excuse me, may i ask a few questions? you don't do that. you just hope the executive secretary is working out in the hallway and continue a little about the order you have been given. i said

of tennessee. icing on the trees can cause power to go down and we talk about a half inch on some of the roads that means those roads become a solid sheet of ice as my mom would say. temps as you are waking up. cold across yeaforts north. not as cold as it was. 3 in minneapolis. the east is is going to look pretty good behind this storm system as far as precipitation goes. big storm out across parts of the west. southern california and arizona. this is one storm, there is another one in towards the pacific northwest. those will be weather makerrers across the central plains and eventually the northeast. take a look at the fiewrd, what this storm does it pulls out here into parts of the plains. by tomorrow you see that big area of pink, that's an ice storm potentially that we are talking about tomorrow and tomorrow night in across places like saint lewis and chicago and detroit. now, typically we see snow here. we don't see ice storms. incredibly dangerous. much more dangerous than a snow storm. big problem we are dealing with here. potentially seeing some of that ice maybe making its way in ph
was killed bay falling tree in tennessee. another died during this tornado caught on video in georgia. it also tore apart dozens of homes and flattened part of a manufacturing plant. more than 100 cars were also flipped on interstate 75. in that state. i woke up this morning and guess what, my patio furniture was all over the place. after that stormy night, what's next? that's the question for storm team 4 meteorologist tom kierein. >> the wind has been picking up this morning. we are dealing with the residual effects of the heavy rain we had last night. some locations in virginia and maryland had as much as three inches of rain and n just three, four hours. all these areas you see in green, they have rivers and streams out of their banks. that includes montgomery county county, loudoun county, and the rest of virginia, east of the blue ridge, fauquier county, rappahannock, culpeper and in parts of the shenandoah valley, too. many creeks and streams are out of their banks and patuxent river south of the brighton dam will be flooded because they are having to release water out of the b

. weather channel meteorologist mike seidel has more from knoxville, tennessee. hey, mike. >> reporter: hey, t.j. here in knoxville the ice storm is now just a memory. we had nine hours of freezing rain. but as you can see here on the trees it's all gone. it all melted. in fact temperatures overnight rose into the mid 30s. but yesterday we had hundreds of accidents across kentucky here in tennessee, even north georgia and through the western carolinas. one fatality reported in upstate south carolina. but the north georgia mountains had ice and cars skidding off the roadways. the other angle with this storm is the fact that we had snow from the ohio valley all the way to the northeast. but the snowfall amounts were on the light side from columbus to pittsburgh, into washington. generally a 1 to 2 inch snowfall. philadelphia and new york central park had 1 1/2 inches of snow. for the first time in chicago in 335 days they had an inch of snow. so the record streak ends but they've only had now about three inches for the entire winter. it still stays very cold today across the midwest and north
